Do your mornings start off with a bang when the alarm goes off? The race is on. Kids, breakfast, work preparation, school, and possibly 10 minutes for yourself to toss your hair back, put on some makeup, and grab an apple.
There just aren't enough hours in the day.
We want to share some ways to Jumpstart Your Day with A Morning Routine. Improve your health and make the most out of your time.
Place A To-Go Basket Near the Front Door
Organize your life for a better start to your day. Place a to-go basket near the front door. The night before, layout your clothes, shoes, bags, lunch box pantry items, backpacks, laptop, files, books, and whatever you need to be on your way and out the door the next morning. This habit will be a life changer!
Wake Up Earlier
Wake up earlier, so you don't have to rush. Don't dread it, just do it. When you set your alarm a little earlier, it gives you more time to prepare for the day and start the day off with less stress. Soon, it becomes a routine that makes your life much easier.
